This afternoon I did a post about Mr Tex Perkins and his buddies, The Cruel Sea … and it turns out I’m not the only person around with such great taste in music. My friend Buffy,( yes that is her real name, and no, she is not named after Buffy The Vampire Slayer, as she says, she is the original Buffy) decided to inform me that a) She has actually met Tex ‘a number of times’ and that b) Her boyfriend Bob, a music writer, is pals with him. Why this fact has not come up sooner in our conversations I do not know! So she sent me the picture below of Tim Rogers & Tex Perkins from a gig they did in Perth way back in 1997 that just happens to be on her wall at home. Now that is pretty damn stealth.
So thanks Buff, this totally made my night! That has to be only 1 degree of separation between Tex and me now right?
Naturally I’ve asked for an intro ASAP. I need to let Tex know I’ll be naming my first born after him.
Peace & Buffy
